Class Descriptions

Aerial and pole arts are highly specialized disciplines that contain serious risks if performed improperly. They entail a great deal of foundational knowledge not found in any other sports. For your safety, anyone new to aerial or pole, even those with a dance or gymnastics background, is required to start with an introductory class or our foundational class, Flex & Flow.

Apparatus Classes

Flex & Flow: Open to all levels, including those brand new to aerial. This class includes conditioning, flexibility training, and for more advanced students, combos (working on connections with or without a spin). You have the option of which apparatuses to train in each class – Silks, hammock knot, lyra, trapeze, and pole. No prior experience required and no prerequisites other than being injury-free. 

Silks Foundations, Transitions, and Dynamics: This class emphasizes foundational strength training, with a strong focus on inversions, hip keys, footlock mastery, and technical excellence. We will also work on foundations of spinning and dynamic movement. Recommended for anyone still trying to achieve their inversion or make it consistent, anyone trying to develop aerial strength and stamina, or anyone who wants to dive deeper into the details of good form in aerial silks. Prerequisites: Basic, russian climb, inverting from ground, double footlocks, single footlock. *Not a class for absolute beginners.
